Audio recording from an event, entitled MOVEMENT, by artist Rob Duarte on June 3, 2011 at the University of California San Diego Visual Arts Performance Space.
"MOVEMENT is a machine performance that documents the activities of a heap of small contraptions and mundane mechanical movements, in an effort to remind its audience of the wonder to be found in the physical, the tactile, the small and the overlooked."

*** Listen using headphones, with the volume turned way up - the actual audio in the performance space, played through 6 large speakers, made the floor shake at times ***
(The first 50 seconds of this track are the sounds of me turning everything on and hitting the start button, after which the system performs autonomously until it is turned off. The nice moment at the end was not really the end but seemed like a perfect time to stop recording.)
